    How to Sign In to Microsoft Account without Saving it as Windows Account?


    Hi,

    I wish to download a Windows Store app, when I signed in to the store using my Microsoft Account - I cloud download the app but it added the account to the Windows settings, so I have the same password as my MS account and sync settings.

    I removed it from Windows but I still need to download some apps, but without changing the entire windows account.

    In iOS, I can go to Settings, then App Store settings and just there sign in, without having to use the account for the whole iPhone/iPad (for this you can go to the iCloud settings).

    In short: I only want to sign in specifically to the Windows Store, not to do so in Windows 10 itself.

    :)

    Strange Windows 10 User Account issue.

    Unfortunately I had done those steps numerous reboots, it just, reappears for no good reason. The base account isn't even a Microsoft account, it's a local account.

    I haven't quite tried the built in administrator account on W10, but so far in my experience on my own computer, the built in account seemed to have absolutely no more control than I did on my own.

    It's just strange, I go in, it warns me twice about deleting the account, then it's gone. Reboot, and it's back?

    EDIT: Just to specify, both command line and Netplwiz both say only HIS account exists on the computer, it doesn't list this rogue account. This is what I meant in my first post about the fact that even Windows doesn't seem to believe it exists, HALF the time. *Frown How to Sign In to Microsoft Account without Saving it as Windows Account? :(

  3. sign into microsoft account glitch

    Hi Micheal,

    Welcome to Microsoft Community.

    • Is this the only account on the computer?
    • Was this account upgraded from previous version of Windows?

    It looks like you are using a local account. I suggest you follow these steps:

    • Click on search in taskbar and type account.
    • Click on Accounts.
    • Now, under Your account, click on Sign in with Microsoft account instead.
    • Enter your Local account password for confirmation and then follow the screen instruction.
    • Enter User name credentials for your the new Microsoft account and click OK.

    Hope this helps.

    Regards
